My little word....

Hiya folks!
How is the weather in your neck of the woods? For us, it has been bitterly cold, and I mean BITTERLY cold. The temps had dropped in the minus 30's, and the wind is just insane! Lots of snow, which has tapered off for now. I am a Canadian, and am used to harsh winters, but this has to be one of the coldest winters I have ever experienced in my life!. So, please stay warm!

Besides the weather, and me still being under the weather, I hope 2014 has gotten off to a good start for you.

Any resolutions? goals? Little words??? :)

For myself, I have a word. A word that I must remember this year. ACCEPT. So many things. I feel after the year 2013, this word is perfect for me. 

Over on the S.W.A.T blog, there is a challenge, drill #23, word for 2014. To create a project to showcase your word. Challenge accepted, challenge accomplished.

For my layout, I just went with it.....no per-determined steps or embellies or papers....just 'went' with it. I have journalling on my layout, but it is personal, so I combined a couple of MME journal, and made a 'folder', held together by a round clip.
Just a modge podge of various elements. I used Distress cardstock for the base, used Distress paints, and gelatos for the edging, MME Sweetest Thing Tangerine papers,  MME journal cards and elements, various letter stickers from Authentique, Kelly Purkey, and Studio Calico. Maya Road love heart, and various elements from Cosmo Cricket, Teresa Collins, American Crafts, and Creative Imaginations, and that awesome arrow is from UmWow Studio. The stamps are from Autumn Leaves, a license plate stamp set..never used before.

I am linking this up to the challenge over on the SWAT blog:

So, that's it for me for now. I am hoping to post again really soon. And I am thinking of doing a giveaway. Imagine that?? Who doesn't love receiving a happy package in the mail??

Be safe. (and warm) Get crafty.
